Exclamation June 2016 Forest River Recalls

rvtravel.com (great site) posts the Forest River recalls for June as follows:

UNITED STATES RECALLS
RECREATION VEHICLES
Forest River, Inc. (Forest River) is recalling certain model year 2007-2014 Solera and Coachmen Prism vehicles, built on Mercedes-Benz and Freightliner Sprinter chassis. Upon deployment of the driver’s frontal air bag, excessive internal pressure may cause the inflator to rupture. In the event of a crash necessitating deployment of the driver’s frontal air bag, the inflator could rupture with metal fragments striking the vehicle occupants potentially resulting in serious injury or death. Forest River will notify owners, and either Mercedes-Benz or Freightliner dealers will replace the driver frontal air bag inflator, free of charge. Parts are not currently available. Interim notices will be sent beginning June 28, 2016. A second notice will be sent when remedy parts are available. Owners may contact Forest River customer service at 1-877-496-3691 or may call the Sprinter/Takata hotline at 1-877-496-3691. Forest River’s number for this recall is 51-04262016-0182.
Forest River, Inc. (Forest River) is recalling certain model year 2016-2017 Forester and Sunseeker recreational vehicles manufactured from February 29, 2016, through April 20, 2016. These vehicles are equipped with a shower door that may not meet the flammability standards. Thus, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) No. 302, “Flammability of Interior Materials.” Failure to meet the flammability standard of FMVSS 302 could enhance the spread of a flame in the event of a fire, increasing the risk serious injury. Forest River will notify owners, and dealers will replace the shower doors, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin on or about July 12, 2016. Owners may contact Forest River customer service at 1-574-206-7600. Forest River’s number for this recall is 34-05052016-0184.
Forest River, Inc. (Forest River) is recalling certain model year 2016 Stealth Evo recreational vehicle trailers, models CSJT280RKS and CSJT290QBS, manufactured January 7, 2016, to March 18, 2016. The affected vehicles may have had tires of the wrong load range installed which may result in premature tire failure. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 110, “Tire Selection and Rims and Motor Home/Recreation Vehicle Trailer Load Carrying Capacity Information for Motor Vehicles with a GVWR of 4,536 kilograms (10,000 pounds) or less.” Unexpected tire failure increases the risk of a crash. Forest River will notify owners, and dealers will supply new correct tires and rims, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin July 18, 2016. Owners may contact Forest River customer service at 1-909-873-3777 extension 52. Forest River’s number for this recall is 67-05192016-0199.
Forest River, Inc. (Forest River) is recalling certain model year 2014-2016 Charleston Class A motorhomes manufactured from September 16, 2013, through September 25, 2016, and built on certain Daimler Trucks North America LLC (DTNA) chassis. On certain motorhome chassis built with a heavier, adjustable foot pedal, the brake activation signal to certain towed devices may not deactivate when the motorhome service brakes are released. If the brake activation signal to a towed device remains active when the motorhome chassis service brakes are released, the brakes on a towed device may remain engaged. As a result, the brakes could drag and overheat, potentially resulting in a fire. Additionally, following drivers may be confused by the motorhome’s actions, increasing the risk of a crash. Forest River will notify owners, and DTNA dealers will modify the affected brake assemblies, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin on or about July 11, 2016. Owners may contact DTNA customer service at 1-800-547-0712. Forest River’s number for this recall is 40-05132016-0196.
Forest River, Inc. (Forest River) is recalling certain model year 2016-2017 Flagstaff trailers manufactured from August 11, 2015, through October 27, 2015, and Work N’ Play trailers manufactured from October 25, 2015, through May 6, 2016. The MB Sturgis liquid propane (LP) regulator on the vehicles may allow propane gas to leak into the regulator sight glass causing it to degrade and potentially crack. If the indicator sight glass cracks, propane gas may leak out. In the presence of an ignition source, a fire could occur. Forest River will notify owners. A remedy plan has not been determined. The recall is expected to begin August 11, 2016. Owners may contact Forest River customer service at 1-888-291-6665. Forest River’s number for this recall is 51-05312016-0205. Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to Home | Safercar -- National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
